FCC May Regulate Internet Lines Days Before Christmas

Wanting more control over everything. That's what this administration loves to push for. The regulations the FCC is pushing are anti-business and government overreach. They say that it will create an open Internet. However, if the government regulates it, it will not be an open Internet. It will be a gateway to Internet regulation. It is crucial that we keep the government as far away from the Internet as possible. The Internet is a main force in opposition to Obama and the Democrats, and we are in the run-up to some more critical elections. Email them and let them know not to do this.

An FCC source confirmed on Friday that the commission plans to push its December meeting back by a week, meaning it will fall on the 22nd of the month. That's the same meeting in which analysts say the agency may move forward on its controversial net-neutrality proposal.

Though the FCC has not confirmed that it will vote on net neutrality this year, rumors are swirling that it will.

The timing of the meeting is already raising eyebrows. Some see it as a way to move the matter along before the GOP assumes the majority and while Congress is not in session to criticize the effort.

Rep. Cliff Stearns (R-Fla.), ranking member of the telecom subcommittee, questioned the schedule on Friday.
